[sword-devel] Lexical fields

There are a few things being mixed up here:

Module driver type: RawLD, zLD, etc., specified in the module's .conf 
ModDrv entry.

Source text MARKUP: OSIS, TEI, ThML, specified with the SourceType entry.

Import format: OSIS, 'Imp', VPL, etc. this only dictates which import 
utility is necessary to use when creating the module.

A TEI LocalOptionFilter to put TEI fields into EntryAttributes would 
allow any TEI field to be searching on with SWORD.  We just need a rich 
modules to prompt the need to create such.

We've discussed allowing the CLucene indexes to be created on any 
EntryAttributes field, so the next step would be to determine if 
indexing these fields would be worth the effort.  My guess is that you 
would be <2 second response from an unindexed search right now.

Hope this helps.
